If it feels like things are shaking all around you, then be encouraged and trust that the shaking is also breaking open new things.
"The breaker [the Messiah, who opens the way] shall go up before them [liberating them]. They will break out, pass through the gate and go out; so their King goes on before them, the Lord at their head." (Micah 2:13 AMP)
The Lord is going before you right now with new power to break things open for you. God spoke this to me last month and said, "The key to this is to keep moving forward and don't stop or look back."
Authority to Subdue Your Storm
"They will pass through the sea of trouble; the surging sea will be subdued and all the depths of the Nile will dry up..." (Zechariah 10:11 NIV)
I released a prophetic word for August 2019, Staying in the Eye of the Storm, encouraging you not to focus on the storm but stay at peace.
I saw the Lord giving new power, prayers and decrees to people to speak to their storm like Jesus did. He stood up and commanded the storm to be still! As you step into this new place of authority, the Lord is going to give you power to subdue the storms that are raging in your life and the world.
It is important to keep your eyes on the Lord and not the waves or the voices of discouragement. There is an angry wind trying to get you distracted from the coming breakthrough. This is why God is releasing new power to intercessors and anyone who calls on the name of the Lord. God will give you your strategy as you seek Him.
Books Being Reconciled: "What Was Intended for Evil"
I had a vision that I was able to see into the courts of Heaven (Daniel 7:10 and 23). I saw angels busy reconciling books that were titled, "What Was Intended for Evil."
"But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive." (Genesis 50:20 NKJV)
The Lord is taking what is intended for evil and any setbacks in your life and bringing a blessing and turnaround. Negative situations will have a good outcome as you keep your focus and trust in God.
As you pray and ask God for repayment of your losses and attacks against you, you are filing a claim in the courts of Heaven.
A "Quick Claim Prayer" You Can Use
Let's Pray: Lord, we bring before You any losses we have experienced, no matter whose fault. We repent for anything we may have done that opened these attacks. We claim Genesis 50:20; anything that was intended as evil against us, Lord, turn it around for good and bring repayment and blessing for any suffering. Amen.
During this heavenly encounter, after I prayed and made a claim, I saw a doorway open in the spirit. A door that said "Freedom from the Past" opened, and I saw people going out of times of wilderness and into a season of joy, and the light of the Lord enveloped them.
Songs of Joy
There is a theme flowing from Heaven right now to stand in the midst of the storm and to not be afraid. God is working beneath the surface, and what seems like a dark time is going to suddenly shift.
"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells." (Psalms 46:1–4 NIV)
I heard this Psalm being sung from Heaven, and I saw the "river whose streams make glad the city of God" begin to flow over the dry ground. It was like an Ezekiel 37 "bring the dry bones to life" experience.
In the midst of your storm, I hope you can catch the vision of what is coming to you. Whether or not you see or hear these things, receive this by faith. Ask the Lord for your breakthrough prayers, make your claim for repayment and step in!
